Nautica & Kipling go live with JDA Allocation
Jan '12
Leading strategic and tactical supply chain consulting firm RPE (Retail Process Engineering) announced the successful implementation and go-live of JDA Allocation for VF Corporation's Nautica and Kipling lifestyle apparel and accessory brands.

The Nautica and Kipling implementation of JDA Allocation tasked RPE to ensure each brand's business process be fully represented and supported in the new system. VF Corporation will utilize the multiple tools JDA Allocation provides to enable accurate, store-specific allocations based on level of demand, plan and historical performance data.

“RPE's leadership, business best practices and JDA Allocation application expertise were vital to the project's success,” said David Lawner, President, Nautica Retail. “This project had an aggressive and challenging implementation schedule, which RPE delivered on time and within budget, meeting all business requirements.”

The JDA Allocation implementation was headed by VF Corporation's Shawn Charrette, PMP, Director Global Business Technology, Retail Systems, who is responsible for overseeing implementations for all VF brands. RPE provided services from a Pre-Work Health Check to post go-live support, including project management, documentation and issues management.

“JDA Allocation is well suited to help increase revenue and reduce inventory levels, allowing scalability while providing best-in-class functionality and optimization,” said Cliff Epstein, President, RPE. “We're pleased to partner with VF Corporation to deliver an allocation solution to support its growth.”

RPE has been providing strategic and tactical supply chain consulting services since 1999. As a leading retail consultant, RPE specializes in business process improvement, package selection, strategic IT planning and systems implementation to deliver innovative merchandising and supply chain solutions.
